FUNimation issued two press releases this morning featuring the casts of two highly anticipated titles: Spice and Wolf and Nabari no Ou.

I know you're probably most waiting for the leads, so I'll just share those here: Spice and Wolf's Horo will be voiced by Brina Palencia, while Lawrence will be played by J. Michael Tatum. Nabari no Ou's lead, Miharu, will also be voiced by Brina Palencia, with Joel McDonald as Yoite, Eric Vale as Tobari-sensei, Chris Burnett as Koichi, Rob McCollum as Yukimi, and Kate Oxley as Raimei.

So FUNimation is kind of having a Palencia-palooza, it would seem!

We've also got some crew info: Justin Nordell will ADR direct Justin Nordell, with Colleen Clinkenbeard on line production. She will also line produce Nabari no Ou and ADR direct as well, with Eric Vale and Monica Rial on scripts.

Both series are due out later this year.

Palencia's done some good stuff, so I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.

It's weird. Funimation's at this place with me where I'll usually trust them with a dub these days. They've done enough good ones by now where as long as the director know's what he or she is doing, and I'm happy with at-least a few of the cast, the director, or the line producer, I'll give it a shot.

I currently can't say that about any other studio, which is telling about the state of dubs.

Anyone have word on Sgt. Frog? Anyone gleam any cast from the showing?

Palencia is becoming one of my favourites. She's an excellent Juliet and her Rei was phenominal. Lawd. I am excited!

You know the best part of this. 1) she is an amazing singer as well (Beck:MCS) AND 2) If all things go well, She coming to CNAnime at the end of August.
